I discovered that if I change the rule to only do the insert, I still have
troubles. The first update to simple2 will insert an row, but a second
update will give a duplicate primary key error.
The timestamp being inserted doesn't correspond to the creation of the
rule. Is the rule's query tree maybe absorbing the default value into
itself, but not doing so until the rules first use?
